Rockler presents Material Mate


Rockler Woodworking and Hardware has recently developed and introduced the Material Mate, a rolling metal frame that functions as a panel cart and a mobile, adjustable-height shop stand.

In panel cart mode, the metal frame features rack supports on one side capable of hauling 4’ x 8’ sheets of plywood, sheetrock and other panels to a capacity of 150 lbs., according to the company.

In shop stand mode, users can simply attach their own tabletop to the metal frame and lock it in the horizontal position.

"The Material Mate makes it easy to transport panels from your vehicle into your shop, and also to elevate them when you're ready to use them. The heavy metal frame is also a very solid base for a shop table, all you have to do is add the top,” Steve Krohmer, Rockler's vice president of product development, said in a statement.

The Material Mate sells for $249.99.
